The pool temperature was better this time and pool area was cleaner. Found a beetle in my bathtub, tho.

We were a little hesitant to book here after reading reviews, but a friend of mine said they had recently been to a birthday party at Splash Island so we went ahead with it. I'm glad we did! We had a great time. The pool was great for $5 a wristband. We did think the wading pool was a bit chilly, but the kids were willing to go in anyway. There is also a larger water slide that is not in the pictures. We chose to rent a poolside room, and am glad we did so we had a place for coats and shoes. We were very pleased with the number of tables and chairs available for our guests and our food. It was also nice to see several large garbage cans around the pool area. We noticed several hotel staff workers coming around with vacuums, collecting towels, and just keeping it nice for all guests to enjoy. We found no trouble with dirt, stains, or mold. Yes, there are areas of the hotel being worked on and remodeled, but we found nothing to make it feel "un-stay-able" or "unsafe" for our kids.

The staff on the phone was very helpful when I first called to ask questions about planning a birthday party. The staff was friendly when we checked in. I am especially impressed with the kind staff member who helped us out when my 5-year-old puked in a garbage can because he swallowed too much water. Another staff member brought clean shower towels to our room when we asked.

The continental breakfast was a nice variety of foods.

We have four kids (ages 2, 4, 5, and 9), so as with any hotel room, I could use a few more feet of space and larger garbage cans within the room; however, for less than a hundred bucks (which included 5 wristbands) I am very happy with the room, the location, the cleanliness and our overall experience! Fridges and microwaves in each room would be a nice touch, but it's not a deal breaker for me since we only stayed one night.

We will be back--as I have four kids who just had a great time at Splash Island!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 172, which turned out to be an excellent location so we had access to our room and...

My family of four stayed at this hotel in November 2013. There was mold in my room , it was dirty, beds were uncomfortable. The pillows were 1/2 the size of normal pillows. We stayed two nights and needed to request that our room be cleaned. We were evacuated from the room due to a fire alarm - we could barely hear the alarm and were never told by staff that were could re-enter. The consumer service was terrible. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.
